Tarn Taran, October 22

A Sheron resident, who gave birth by the roadside near the local Civil Hospital after being allegedly denied admission on Wednesday, left the hospital today claiming lack of care and accusing the staff of attempting to gag her.

Bhag Singh, husband of Kuldeep Kaur (27), claimed they had gone to the hospital around 4 am yesterday but the staff refused admission and asked them to go to Government Hospital, Amritsar.

While making arrangements for a vehicle, Kuldeep gave birth by the roadside. After the delivery, the staff admitted her to the hospital. The patient today left the hospital, alleging lack of care and bid to gag her by the staff.

Bhag Singh told mediapersons the staff allegedly misbehaved with his wife after admitting her. He said they chose to leave hospital but the staff refused to release her file.

SMO Dr Rohit Mehta said he had constituted a probe panel, which will submit its report on Friday. The SMO said as the village fell under Kairon block, the Community Health Centre, Kairon, had been directed to locate the woman. — OC
